My 2 1/2 yr old has been sick for 3 days. Fever, runny nose, chills. She's not eating/drinking much. How long til I take her to the dr?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not about time

If she is getting worse, not drinking or becoming lethargic, take her now.

In brief: Fever

Give Ibuprofen every 6 hours (if not allergic), cold liquids (ice chips, popsicles, pedialyte, juice any liquid he likes).
If fever are over 101, vomiting, lethargic, abdominal pain, unusual rash, diarrhea then is better to see doctor tonight.
